5 Months that is. And one day, to be exact. That's how long we've been on the waitlist. Honestly, we are doing good. Time has gone by fast so far. It's nice to realize we are more than halfway through the estimated wait.
We can't wait to see the face of our baby girl, but are totally trusting in God's perfect timing. We know that he already knows her face, her story, and how she'll fit into our family. That gives us alot of comfort.
Sometimes, I wonder where she is. What her birthmother is facing. Do they have nutrition? Do they have a home? Are they healthy? Then I quickly realize it does me NO GOOD to wonder. I just have to believe that God has this one. He knows it all, and probably more than we ever will about her story. He knows it. He sees it. He cares about it. He loves our girl more than we ever will be capable of. He will comfort her, and love her now, and when she's here with us. That gives us the ability to trust his timing.
Baby Girl, we're getting closer! We can't wait to see your face.
